Rickycare ArganPlus Extra Wide Comb

Occasionally we come across a product that bestows an immediate glow, changing our look (for the better!) in an instant. Since we’d be remiss to keep them to ourselves, we highlight these genius finds in our Instant Makeover series.

This wide-toothed comb completes the obvious task of brushing out tangles, but the plastic it’s made from is also infused with argan oil. So each time you brush through, the oil is distributed evenly throughout the hair to eliminate static and flyaways. I’m always a little wary of using oil on my hair because if I apply too much, my hair gets really greasy. But with this comb, it’s hard to go overboard.
